Williams have revealed a special livery designed in collaboration with sponsor Gulf that will be used at the Singapore, Japan and Qatar Grands Prix later this season.

The 'Bolder than Bold' design won a worldwide vote that had given fans the opportunity to choose between four options.

Before debuting under the lights at the Singapore Grand Prix from September 15-17, the livery will be on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from July 13-16.

"This competition was an incredible opportunity for our fans to actively engage and shape the visual identity of our team," Williams team principal James Vowles said.

"The winning design encapsulates the essence of the Gulf and Williams Racing partnership, reflecting on the past but building on our future. This livery will create a defining moment when it takes to the track later in the season."

The unveiling of the livery follows a positive weekend for Williams at the British Grand Prix, which saw Alex Albon finish eighth at Silverstone.

The voting process, which began in May was carried out over three rounds, saw 180,000 votes cast in total, with the winning design narrowly securing victory at the final stage by claiming 51.9 per cent of the poll.
